Brazil's Troller, founded in 1995 and purchased by Ford in 2007, has revealed the first all-new model to be developed under the stewardship of its new owner.
Revealed first as the TR-X concept in 2012, this new Troller T4 is an off-roader that builds on the Jeep-inspired styling of the first-generation T4 that launched in 1999.
While sales of the first model eventually expanded to include Africa, this new T4 is expected to be offered in Brazil only - despite notching up an incredible four million sales by 2010.
This new model, which again builds on the Wrangler look and adds a dash of Land Rover Defender, is powered by a 3.2 litre diesel - possibly the same 147kW unit that you'll find in the Ford Ranger here in Australia.
The Troller's diesel, however much it produces (Ford hasn't said), sends power to a 4x4 system through a six-speed manual transmission.
The first T4 saw a successful run in the famous Dakar rally series, but it remains to be seen if Troller intends to campaign its new model.
Of course, the only campaign we're interested in is the one where you all storm Ford Australia's phone lines and mailboxes with demands for a local Troller T4 launch.
(But with a left-hand-only production run expected, the chances of that are slim.)
